Live from LaVal's: Program 10 - 10-4-92




Live from laVal's program from October 4, 1992, hosted by Earl Oliver and featuring slack key master, Patrick Landeza, plus Earl Oliver with Deane Juhan and Gregg Norman.

Hawaiian musician, songwriter, producer and educator Patrick Kahakauwila Kamaholelani Landeza is considered to be a leading performer of Hawaiian slack key guitar, or ki ho'alu, one of the world's great acoustic guitar traditions. In a career that includes having his original composition featured on a Miss Universe Pageant television special, becoming the first slack key artist to perform the national anthem at a Major League Baseball game, opening for legendary Hawaiian musicians Israel "Bruddah Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole, Keali'i Reichel and HAPA, and cutting two albums, it's no wonder that Jim Harrington of the Oakland Tribune noted that "Patrick Landeza's mastery of Hawaiian slack key guitar" keeps him in heavy demand. Noted pianist and ki ho'alu player George Winston, who has recorded and played with some of the greatest slack key musicians, says "Patrick Landeza is one of the best and most dedicated of the new generation of slack key players." In 1995, 1996, and 2003, Patrick was the only mainland performer to be invited to the annual Bank of Hawai'i Ki ho'alu Festival, considered the "grand-daddy" of all slack key events. "Playing the slack key fest was a dream come true for me," said Patrick.

Deane Juhan was already considered as a legendary blues player in the San Francisco Bay area when this program was taped. Bassist, Gregg Norman, moved away to Las Vegas in the late 1990's and started a band there called "The Lounge Lizards" that eventually became one of the hottest acts on the Vegas strip.
